NEW YORK, NY – OCTOBER 30: (L-R) Takeof, Offset, and Quavo attend Power 105.1’s Powerhouse 2014 at Barclays Center of Brooklyn.

Migos is a hip-hop group that formed in 2009 from Atlanta, Georgia. They are comprised of members, Quavo, Takeoff and Offset. They have been able to rise to stardom with a number of monster hits and under the direction of Gucci Mane’s and Young Jeezy’s former manager.

Migos is best known for “Bad and Boujee” and “Versace” but they have much more in their arsenal. Below is a list of Migo’s best top ten songs.

1. “Bad and Boujee”

Migos had been around for years but the success of “Bad and Boujee” came as a surprise to everyone. The song which became Migos first number one on Billboard Hot 100 took the world by storm with the opening line “raindrops/drop tops/Smokin’ on cookie in the hot box.” Those lyrics alone drew a slew of memes on Twitter of different jokes and wordplay. “Bad and Boujee” was the lead single off of their album Culture.

The release of this song came at a perfect time with Atlanta heating up and getting back to their golden era similar to when Usher and Jermaine Dupri ran things. The Atlanta Falcons were headed to the Superbowl and Donald Glover shouted out how great the song is in his Golden Globe acceptance speech for his hit-tv show “Atlanta.”

2. “Hannah Montana”

The song is named after the children television show “Hannah Montana” starring Miley Cyrus but this song is anything but innocent. In this song “Hannah Montana” is slang for cocaine. The lyrics “Hannah Montana, Hannah Montana, I got molly I got white, I been trapping, trapping, trapping, trapping all damn night” is what gives it away. Despite the meaning of the song you can’t deny its infectiousness. Dropping in 2013, it is one of Migos first hit singles. The song dropped when Migos was creating a lane for themselves as rappers who take famous names and brands and turn them into hooks that you will be singing over and over.

“Hannah Montana” has over 6 million listens on Soundcloud and over 11 million views on YouTube.

3. “Fight Night”

After putting out countless mixtapes and albums, Migos were searching for a hit that would put them more on a mainstream map. In 2014, Migos found their hit with “Fight Night.” The song features a beat that is made up mostly by a bass-synth mix. Takeoff’s energy on the hook about the “Fight Night” sexual innuendo makes the song the perfect Migos hit.

“Fight Night” has 43 million listens on Soundcloud. With the catchy hook of “hit it with the left, hit it with the right” it should be no surprise why.

4. “Deadz”

“Deadz” is Migos third single off of their Culture album. The song is a tale of all the different ways they make money. Some of it rap money and some of it is drug money. Whether you agree with it or not you are bound to feel rich too when the chorus hits,” Uh oh, fresh out the bed, uh oh/ Uh oh, count up the deads, uh oh.” Counting dead presidents on dollar bills is a hobby for Migos and will make you feel like it is for you too.

“Deadz” which features 2 Chainz has a very luxurious music video which shows the rappers throwing hundreds around a mansion dressed in furs.

5. “Versace”

The first rapper to put Versace clothing on the map was The Notorious B.I.G. However, Migos have carried the torch with this song. The hook sounds like a mantra that captivates you, “Versace Versace Medusa head on me like I’m ‘lluminati, I know that you like it Versace, my neck and my wrist is so sloppy.” The song had a ton of radio play and landed as 99 on Billboard’s Hot 100.

The success of the song and catchy hook about the luxury clothing brand caught the attention of Drake who dropped a remix.

6. “T-Shirt”

“T-Shirt” is a recent hit from the same Culture album that “Bad and Boujee” is on. By this time Migos has perfected their hit formula. Behind “Bad and Boujee” scoring the number one spot on Billboard’s Hot 100, “T-Shirt” landed at 19. As usual, the hook is catchy, “Mama told me (aye) not to sell work (mama)/ Seventeen five, same color T-shirt (white)/Mama told me (aye) not to sell work (mama)/Seventeen five, same color T-shirt (yeah)”

“T-Shirt” has 22 million listens on Soundcloud and over 57 million views on YouTube which features a video of them dressed in head to toe fur in a snow storm.

7. “Bricks”

DJ Carnage known for mixing trap beats with elements that can be played universally created a beat that was tailored made for Migos. The beat or video isn’t typical Migos but the energy has created the perfect song to workout or get hype to. Bricks has become the theme song for sports highlight reels on YouTube.

The video looks old school 90s hip hop, similar to a Missy Elliott video – it has animations, close up angles and beautiful women.

8. “China Town”

“China Town” is another one of Migo’s songs that show their diversity. Instead of shouting a luxury name brand, the chorus is a list of their favorite fighters, “Black shades, Johnny Cage, diamonds go parade, Motorola in the kitchen whippin’ Sonya, my plug look like Pacquiao, his daughter is Kitana!”

The video is filmed in Los Angeles “China Town” and shows Quavo, OffSet and Takeoff rapping their infectious flow in front of different tourist spots.

9. “Look at My Dab”

“Look at My Dab” is a single released in 2015. The song took off during the time the “dab” dance move was becoming popular. The song which chorus is, “look at my dab” over and over again sparked controversy over who started the dance.

Many rappers are claiming to start the “dab” dance such as Rich the Kid and Peewee Longway. It doesn’t really matter who started the dance because Migo’s hit is the song that allowed the dance to take steam.

10. “ Handsome and Wealthy”

This song stands out because it has a different tone from the rest of Migo’s songs. Up until this point, Migos has been known for their upbeat energetic songs while repeating the same phrase over and over. However, on “Handsome and Wealthy” Quavo is singing “I don’t know why I came to the club with you, giiiiiirl.” Granted, the singing is a bit off-key and sloppy sounding it is still a break from the grime of the No Label II album.
